A Coffin For Two



Today's not one of my better days Even I have 'em every so often Believe me mine are rarer than most Will be chuckling even in my coffin Sure hope it doesn't freak someone out And another kicks the bucket as well A couple of funerals for the price of one Coffin would be cramped as hell Don't mind sharing but just imagine If this dude was from the opposite sex Some hanky panky would likely ensue Some real rockin' 'n rollin' by heck Mourners would scatter pretty damn quick As they try their damnedest to get out Nobody's staying for the final word Lowering us, they'd play “Twist And Shout!” What silly nonsense, can you imagine That this could actually take place Certainly they'd give us a box of our own Or at least not put us face to face! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Jack, laughing here! That would make for some interesting fun at our demise. Better hope we're paired with someone we don't despise. Your a riot! Hugs

    Dragons sooo big they'd have to cremate him first, before he'd fit in a coffin... even then it'd be iffy... LOL... Yes Dragon that was one of those jokes I told you about... NOT! OOOppps gotta run... Hey leave those roses alone!... Your like a darn bird... You always dump a load before you take off... But you aim... LEAVE the Roses ALONE!... Sigh... Gotta quit making those comments... NAW! ... LOL... They're too much fun and give Dragon his daily exercise...

    He can change his colors to hide... until he gets older... Then he'll pick a color to stay... Bet you didn't think I'd say that one...LOL
